Great Migration Live Update – 11 February 2019

It’s calving season and the great herds remain far south!

Pilot Bucks Cassim captured a large herd from the bird’s eye in the southern Serengeti Airstrip.

In February, an incredible 80% of wildebeest females intuitively give birth within a period of two to three week, before the great migration commences. The synchronisation reduces the possibility of tender wildebeest calves becoming easy prey.

Safari freelance Elia Edward captured a small herd of wobbly wildebeest babies in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area during his game drive.

February is the only time of year when you are almost guaranteed to see the big herds all together as they always come south for calving season. The great migration was captured 10nm north of the Ndutu airstrip.

The good grazing of the southern Serengeti, Ndutu and Ngorongoro Conservation areas means the herds remain in the far south. The great herds were spotted around the Miti Mitatu area.
